That’s something completely different! But I couldn’t come up with another book topic & didn’t like the suggested one.. Here you go, the worst Wrestling gimmicks and most horrible ideas the writers come up with! Mostly from the 80s and 90s. Wrestling has become much more athletic and serious (and much less racist & sexist), strange gimmicks are not seen very often anymore. I’ll do another topic on my favourite wrestlers/gimmicks/moves another time.
So keep in mind.. THIS IS NOT WRESTLING ANYMORE NOWADAYS! 😀
The Repo Man –> he’s basically just sneaking around, stealing stuff & looking like a crappy supervillain. The Repo Man!
The Shockmaster –> he was supposed to be this super strong, mysterious guy. He also wore a Stormtrooper helmet covered in glitter. When he debuted, he fell through a door and lost said helmet….
Isaac Yankem –> A dentist. Because. Don’t ask questions^^ Later became famous as Kane, so it all turned out very well for him.
Henry O. Godwinn –> a pig farmer. Famous for his very memorable (haaa…) ‘hog pen matches’ Yup. This is real.
The Boogeyman –> he ate real worms and knocked himself in the head with a giant alarm clock.
Duke ‘The Dumpster’ Droese –> A garbage man who carried a trash can to the ring. Because what else is more badass?!
Akeem, The African Dream –> who was American…
Mantaur –> A Wrestler dressed up as the minotaur. Yup, that happened. He took off his costume to wrestle though^^
Bastion Booger –> just a dude acting all gross. Why did they think that was a good idea? We will never know… AND WHO PICKED THAT OUTFIT?! Sorry guys…..
The Gobbledy Gooker –> A man in a giant rooster costume who popped out of a massive fake egg as a surprise. WHO THOUGHT THIS WOULD WORK??!
I hope you all enjoyed this little look into the world of wrestling! I need to do another post on worst wrestling outfits in the future as well, there’s just too much and the world needs to see!
